Local information

  • Originally called The Severn Gorge, Ironbridge, a UNESCO world heritage site, now takes its name from the famous Iron Bridge, the first iron bridge of its kind in the world and a
  • monument to the industrial revolution which began in the eighteenth century. The bridge was built in 1779 by Abraham Darby III to link the industrial town of Broseley with the
  • smaller mining town of Madeley and the growing industrial centre of Coalbrookdale.
  • The Ironbridge Gorge offers a reminder of the origins of the industrial revolution with extensive museums, public buildings and original architecture all set within a traditional landscape.
  • Today Ironbridge is very much a working museum. The High Street and The Square house the main shops in the area which offers a wide range of giftware, furniture, basic commodities, food and antiques.
  • There is also a selection of excellent gastro pubs, cafés, restaurants, a wine bar, hairdresser and a post office. Ironbridge is close to the town of Telford (from the M54 approximately 6 miles) but provides easy access to the Midlands business centre and the national motorway network. The county town of Shrewsbury is approximately 16 miles away. There is a rail
  • link from Telford and from Wolverhampton to London Euston, while regional airports include Birmingham (70 miles), East Midlands and Manchester.
  • There are schools in the area including the well-respected Coalbrookdale infant and junior school, the Thomas Telford Academy, Abraham Darby School and the William Brookes School in the nearby town of Much Wenlock. Within the private sector, Wrekin College, Shrewsbury School and Shrewsbury High School together with a variety of prep schools are all within easy
  • travelling distance.
